I'm trying to make a DVD image(*.iso) with mkisofs program.
I've typed mkisofs -o linux_dvd.iso /e/linux_stuff, and it's starts, but when it's at 80%, it stops and it saying :File size limit exceeded
what am doing wrong?
what is the problem?
although I havent used this command before,
but its seems to me that file size wouldnt matter here, cause he is creating the iso file on the hdd. if the hdd doesnt have enough space...that could be the problem.
strycnine, check the hdd space left in your current directory.
Ext3 and Reiser have been able to support > 2 GB files for some time now. I just rm'ed a 35 GB file from one of our old RH9 file servers at work (filesystem is ext3) . Unless of course SuSE 10.1 turns off large file support for some reason...
I'm saving the iso file in a windows partition(FAT32), yes I have enought space on my hdd, and for linux paritions I have ext2 (but the thing is that I don't have enoughtspace). Linux stuff folder has 4.5 GB
